Abstract

Traumatic or irritational fibroma is a general benign exophytic tumor or neoplasm of fibrous connective tissue origin that can be considered a reactionary connective tissue hyperplasia in response to trauma and irritation. They are clinically marked by solid well-demarcated rounded, sessile, or pedunculated growths covered by normal mucosa and are a relatively uncommon lesion. Local trauma can generate ulceration of these lesions. They are usually seen on the buccal mucosa but can also occur at any intra-oral site. These lesions are more common in adults and can befall at any age. Simple, complete excision and removal of the cause of irritation are the preferred treatment. The use of lasers in different dental procedures has become very common. Lasers have obvious benefits for all the patients without administering anesthetic shots and that means less time spent in the dental chair. Procedures were performed more conservatively, with less trauma for patients. The excision of the fibroma with the diode laser is a safe, quick procedure, with minimum postoperative discomfort and complications. This paper reports the management of a fibroma in a 25-year-old male with a mass in the inner surface of left check with a 940 nm diode laser.
